Her Royal Majesty finally announced her successor to the throne...or at least Netflix announced who will replace Claire Foy as Queen Elizabeth II in seasons three and four of The Crown.

British actress Olivia Colman has been bestowed the prestigious honor, and honestly, we’re pretty bloody excited. We first fell in love with Colman after watching her performance as the no-nonsense Angela Burr in The Night Manager (although you might also recognize her as Ellie Miller from the U.K. series Broadchurch), and it sounds like Foy is pretty enamored with the actress as well.

Earlier this month during a press conference for her film Breathe, Foy exclaimed, “I know who’s doing it and I’m not telling you... It’s really exciting and great and amazing!”

No word yet on who will be the Prince Philip to Colman’s Lilibet, but you can catch Matt Smith (Prince Philip in seasons one and two) and Foy’s final episodes as the royal duo in season two of The Crown premiering on Netflix on December 8.
